Save Lucas

At 3 months of age, I (Lucas) was diagnosed with an incurable liver disease. By 9 months of age the disease had rapidly progressed. My only chance of life was the "gift of life" through organ donation. I waited and waited for the call for transplant 1.5 years past without one offer. I had two weeks to live, when God started to tell my Mom what to do. One of Gods' requests was to "start a facebook page" Knowing my time was running out, Mom and my family got to work and listened to God as He continued to guide them. A massive national/worldwide campaign #savelucas was started as my family pushed to educate the public about the importance of organ donation! A family in Nebraska #princessesdontwearpants directly donated their daughters liver to Lucas through Facebook. It was a miracle! Lucas received his gift of life as time ran out! We continue on in this journey of faith sharing God's goodness as well as my transplant journey! We want to expand the reach of our page, spread Gods love and save lives through organ donation awareness! Thank you for your prayers! God Bless

UPDATE: Fitsula broke open! Thank you Jesus, mother mary, angels and saints and all my prayer warriors!

After having lots of fun yesterday with family as shown in the picture below.....

Tonight i am in a tremendous amount of pain as my fitsula is yet again forming into the size of 1000 pimples. Tylenol didnt even help for 10 minutes and I was screaming at the top of my lungs at home.

My parents have been trying to distract me from my terrible pain by driving around Farm tractors and cutting the grass for the last 1.5 hours. Yah i know its getting dark....we are cutting grass with tractor lights. The distraction helps, the vibration and the noise is relaxing.

Next...we will probably drive around in the car until my fitsula bursts as it seems to relax me more than laying in my bed.

If you see us driving....its hasnt yet burst. Hopefully this will burst soon letting the liver fluids out

I offer this suffering and the suffering of my family to God for the good He will do in this world.

Jesus I Trust in You

Thank you for your prayers!

Sunday work day!

Im a worker bee! First I cut the grass in the morning, then I helped to clean the house, sweep the floors and then mop the kitchen! Sometimes I do the dishes other times I windex the windows after we all lick them! Yes I said lick! πŸ˜‚ Did you ever taste a window??? Your really missing out if you havent recently!!! They are soooo good!

This morning I got my TPN line wrapped all in the sweeper cord that it was such a cluster of a mess, that I had to be disconnected a little early! Woops!!!

We boiled some lettuce tonight and fed our tadpoles....all 100 of them that are gloriously approaching Frog-hood!!

Preliminary results from pathology show NO REJECTION so far!

Thanks be to God for His endless love!!!

Theres not yet an answer from my biopsy as to why my liver is showing signs of being so darn grumpy BUT we are rolling with it! We still have our wheels and we havent lost a wheel yet! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Beep beep beep! We are a loud and noisy crew!

Today, we knew we would get preliminary results and that there was the possibility we would be admitted by afternoon. So we woke up early and got busy having fun!!!

We flew the airplane! We took walks! We tried to fix the go-cart...we ran and played outside all day! We ended the night by going to Cranberry to the Field and Stream store to get some fishing supplies! Woot!!!

The pictures at the hospital were from yesterday. The thumbs up was after I woke from anethesia and the one with the stethoscope was before the biopsy bc I like to play doctor with real supplies!

I heard tho its not good technique to grab your patients blue bra to listen for belly heartbeats! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Just had to double check there werent triplets in that belly bccause every last one of Dads wheels WILL fall off!!! 🀣

My diagnosis....just a hungry Mommy belly!

Praise the Lord! After 24 hours wothout food or drink, Mom slaps this monster cookie in my paws!!! I did the truffle shuffle, no joke, I was so excited!!

I have to wait 4 hours after my liver biopsy to be sure my blood counts are stable. My liver biopsy results are being processed and are STAT so they should be back by tomorrow.

God is with us...He will get us through this. We are hoping that we can go home tonight so I can fight Jacob and take his toys bc I like showing off my pectoral muscles!!!

With 3 boys fighting Mom and Dad just go and hide! πŸ™‰πŸ™‰πŸ™‰πŸ™‰πŸ™‰ and pray πŸ“Ώ for patience!

Thank you for your prayers! We feel very blessed to be loved so much!
